Environmental Benefits of FluidForming
Minimize Your Environmental Impact
Here at FluidForming Americas, we’re committed to preserving our environment while contributing to the American economy. We’re proud of our green manufacturing process and technology, and we’re honored to be a part of the growing sustainable manufacturing community.
Historically, metal forming — especially hot stamping, forging, and other hot forming processes — has a terrible environmental record. Even traditional hydroforming, which relies on petrochemicals and costly consumables, leaves a sizable carbon footprint.
FluidForming is different. Our FormBalancers use water as the forming force, nested tooling capabilities minimize material waste, and our 99.99% accuracy and repeatability rates virtually eliminate scrap from non-conforming parts.
What is sustainable manufacturing?
Environmentally-friendly Hydroforming Innovation
FluidForming’s cold forming metalworking technology is inherently green. Our precise and repeatable Six Sigma process (99.996% first-pass yield rate) minimizes waste while improving component integrity and stiffness.
In stark contrast to the conventional hydroforming process, which relies on costly and environmentally harmful hydraulic oil and bladders, FluidForming’s bladder-free technology relies on recycled tap water as the forming force.
Other environmental benefits of FluidForming include:
- Low energy consumption.
- Low-noise operation.
- Water is the forming force.
- Cold-forming process.
- Rejected waste heat can be recovered and recycled.
- Reduce raw material waste.
- Eliminate non-conforming part waste.
- Blemish-free parts eliminate the need for downstream fixturing.
- Lower part weights improve performance.
- Replace environmentally harmful foundry cast or plastic parts with metal.
- 4-in-1 tube forming and sheet metal forming capabilities.
- Increased product lifespan and lifecycle.
- Achieve sustainability goals
- Support sustainable manufacturing processes
